Chapter 18: Managing the crises at home: the role of Suu Kyi’s mediation efforts in Myanmar
Restricted access

There are multiple crises occurring within Myanmar related to the management of the Rohingya population and the creation of a national peace agreement. Myanmar is a rare example of local actors managing these crises by intentionally limiting outside involvement. These features make Myanmar a unique case for examining insider mediation efforts. This chapter analyzes Suu Kyi’s role in mediating these crises. While Suu Kyi has some inherent strengths due to her familiarity with the crisis, she is limited by her inability to shift the power dynamics and other constraints due to being an insider mediator. This chapter concludes by identifying lessons learned for other insider mediators and outside actors looking to support their efforts.
